Book Club - The Pleasure Trap (week 2)

Welcome back to the second week of our virtual book club! To see last week's questions and discussions check out our group on goodreads or my post here.

We've been reading The Pleasure Trap by Doug Lisle

     

This Week's Thought Questions:

1. If pain is nature's guidance towards corrective behaviors, how are we not following the motivational triad by seeking pain relieving medicine?

2. What kind of medicinal goal do you want your doctor to practice, the Healing Goal or the Pain Relief Goal? Do we as a society overlook the difference between Pain Relief and Healing? If doctors and hospitals are so good at Pain Relief, why do we assume that they are so good at Healing as well?
